Attached is a link to an interactive map of the United States. Float the curser over a state and its breakdown of federal and state motor fuel taxes appears.
As of January 2014, highest rate was California @ 70.87 cents per gallon and Alaska the lowest @ 30.80 cents per gallon.
I recently moved from Illinois, where the tax is 57.50 cents per gallon of gasoline to Virginia where the rate is 35.68 per gallon.
Tax rates on motor fuel may have absolutely no corollary to the condition of a state’s road and bridge infrastructure.
Example: I drive all over the Commonwealth of Virginia, including the heavily traveled I-95 and I-64 corridors, and generally speaking its roads are a dream compared to Illinois, where motorists spend almost 22 cents more in taxes on a gallon of gasoline.
Not a new topic here on the forum. But thought to bring it up again because there is discussion among some on Capitol Hill seeking to double the current 18 cents per gallon federal tax on motor fuel.
Whatever your position on the topic, take time to be informed about motor fuel taxes, including how your state spends the tax proceeds.

Curious if you have submitted for it? When I penciled it out it appeared to not be worth bothering with if I was figuring it right.
